I'll just have to come out and see it in person.
No excuses now that they took the toll off the bridge.
Looks like you are almost done.
When will it be on the road?

Had a little jeep time today , I took a brake from renovating our kitchen to keep my sanity, I was able to install the exhaust with a little tweaking I have it positioned and now just need to tighten it all up , and next was fitting the rear tail light panels and rear wheel tubs.

Looks great Andy.

Did you buy the panels or fabricate them yourself?

I ordered the rear tubs from Classic, mine were too far gone to repair and for the price it would be hard to fab for the price and the same for the tail light panels, they were so hacked up from Bubba that it wasn't worth the effort

When I originally made my battery cables from the starter switch to the starter I wanted to make it easy to excess the starter switch but after making the cables and bolting them in place they were too tight to the engine block and the potential for the cables to short out on the block was too great, so out they came and new ends are soldered on at a different angle.

Smart move on the battery cables, body work looks fantastic(between you, Gil and a bunch of others my poor jeep starting to develop an inferiority complex ) By the way what is the small bracket on the pass side right before the bed(looks like it would be in the tool box) used for? Joe Wadoyado from the water, winter, wonderland.

At first I thought it was a support bracket and then I had seen a little trivia blurb that said that some jeeps had a drain that channeled the water from the tool box lid channel out the back of the floor riser but mine had no hole so I am not quite sure what its for, I still removed it from my old floor riser and installed it on my new one
